Turned up, reception was closed, someone at the hostel found the receptionist who offered us two keys depending on which room had been made up. Neither had been cleaned and after our long journey had to search the rest of town for a room on the same night.

No lockers and dorm doors are never locked! Rooms and ensuite bathroom dirty, verry thin and uncomfortable mattress. Reception is almost never open even tho it’s said otherwise online, and nobody picks up when you call. Had to leave my key(not that you’d have needed that one anyway) with another girl because I wanted to check out(at 9am!) and reception was closed. Some nice people there tho, good wifi and a bar next door connected to it.

Very basic and tired old hotel now being used for backpacker accommodation. Room was musky smelling and very basic with facilities only just functioning.

Nice hostel close to CBD

Pros: Location, room cleaning everyday.
Cons: Cleaning under the beds. When we were checking out, we noticed there was rubbish/dirt under the bed from people that have stayed before.
Location: Good location close to shops, car-rent, bars, CBD.
It was clean overall. Good location, close to CBD, Crocodile Cove car rental, Coles, bars, restaurants and coffees. The online booking service was efficient. They quickly responded to my enquiry regarding a late check in, providing with a code to give us access. Everything was quite straight forward and it was easy to book and get there. It was just a little bit 'smelly' at night with all people from the bar beside smoking and all that smoke getting to the outside area or balcony of the rooms.
